Xavi turns one! @lizzzuy wanted a fiesta themed cake and our creative juices started flowing! The base layer is ube, coconut, and ube mascarpone filling, 2nd layer is butter cake with swiss buttercream and sharp cheddar, top layer is pandan with yema filling. Around the cake we made our heirloom polvoron, puto in three flavors, coconut macaroons and finished with banana chips. Our base layer was decorated with a solihiya pattern finished off with an edible sugar varnish, and we thought it would be the best accent to add two banana trees made completely of sugar paste. Our brand is proudly filipino and we are so proud to showcase filipino flavors at its finest in Xavi's cake 😊 thanks for making us part of your celebrations Liz, Ryan and Xavi! . . . .

Mother and son posed for the camera, with Xavi showing his biggest smile that looked like he enjoyed his special day.
Several snaps also showed celebrity guests who came, such as Nikki Gil with BJ Albert and son Finn, model turned entrepreneur Bea Soriano-Dee with husband Eric and daughter Billie, as well as Isabelle Daza with Adrien Semblat and baby Baltie.
Also among the guests were Mariel Rodriguez with daughter Isabella, who finally met the birthday boy on his special day. Isabella even had a playdate with Xavi.
Uy’s sister Laureen also shared mementos from the party by posting several shots of Xavi with his mom. It can be noted that his father, Raymond Racaza, was also seen in one of the shots with Uy and the boy.
In a video of the event shared on Uy’s Instagram Stories, the family of three is seen together.
Happy birthday, Xavi! NVG
